County employers: Chapter 542, Laws of 2015, allows you to elect a provision so that service performed by a deputy sheriff will no longer need annual certification attesting that the deputy sheriff has performed 50 percent criminal law enforcement duties. A copy of the deputy sheriff’s Bureau of Municipal Police Training Council (BMPTC) certification will be required at the time you adopt the provision; if there is no certification on file for a deputy sheriff, you’ll be required to continue the annual certification for that deputy sheriff. This provision is for deputy sheriffs enrolled in Article 14-B special retirement plans.
If you have questions about adopting this provision, please contact the Employer Education & Participation Unit.
